Recent avalanches on Ben Nevis
24th February 2015
I was on Ben Nevis again today. There was a little more visibility than the past couple of days, but still not very much. Plenty of fresh snow around though. There has been a couple of incidents recently of people been caught by natural avalanches coming down Number 5 gully while they have been approaching route such as Ledge Route or The Curtain. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt, and thanks to the people involved for recording these avalanches on the SAIS website and in the CIC hut avalanche book. In the current conditions I would be very wary of spending time below any of the big grade one gullies on Ben Nevis.
